Leslie Sacks, a name synonymous with fine art, opened his first gallery in 1981 in Johannesburg, South Africa and followed it with an opening in the Los Angeles Brentwood neighborhood in 1992. Sacks’ gallery is now an important venue in America, specializing in fine prints by contemporary American and European artists.
In addition to unique works on paper, the gallery also features sculpture, painting, impressionist and expressionist work, a selection of illustrated artists’ books, and a vetted collection of African tribal art.
In 2007, Sacks acquired Santa Monica’s Bobbie Greenfield Gallery, which is now called Leslie Sacks Contemporary. It represents the estate of Robert Motherwell (The Dedalus Foundation), and the Andy Warhol Foundation. Visit Leslie Sacks here.
